Pen and ink drawings printed as wall paper and installed with the painting at the Art Museum of the Americas for the exhibition Ripple Effect: Currents of Socially Engaged Art. The embroidered mask and photos were created by the ASCHOY Collective in 2007 as part of ongoing artistic research and engagements in La Paz, Bolivia. I was invited to contribute the drawings and painting for the installation of ASHCOY’s work at AMA. A more detailed description of the project can be found on my blog.
